OPPS, WHERE DID YOUR GOOD HABITS GO?
Time for some weight loss? As 2020 whimpered out, the normal January gym spike became little more than a blip. Fat meme mania burned up bandwidth and getting dressed meant sweats du-jour. You’re doing crunches twice a day now; Captain in the morning and Nestle in the afternoon. Squats have become what you need to do to see the numbers on the scale. Instead of forced reps, you’re repetitiously forcing more food in. Breaking a sweat now comes from the fire of the spiciest hot sauce. Homebound has taken the muscle out of musclebound. Enough to give Mr. and Ms. Olympia a good laugh. Instead of losing, you feel like you’re losing it.
WEIGH-IN ON THE FACTS
You’re not alone. Wanting weight loss is a resolution from time eternal. Not one kept with any regularity. Before the first month of the year has even come to an end, most people have given up on their annual commitment to themselves. Research conducted by Strava, the social network for athletes, has discovered that January 12th, is the fateful day of New Year’s resolutions fizzle. For every person posting a sweaty “crushed it” selfie on Instagram, there’s another one (or four) just trying to endure pandemic-induced stress. Caused among other things, by an average 16-pound weight gain.
FEEL LIKE YOUR EXPIRATION DATE HAS EXPIRED?
Weight gain doesn’t just take away from the way you look. It can take a serious hit on your overall health. The U.S. adult obesity rate tops 40 percent; the highest ever recorded. COVID related food insecurity puts more Americans at risk for obesity or worsening obesity. That puts them at risk for chronic fatigue, muscle aches, joint pain, headaches, and high blood pressure. But it can get much more serious. All that excess body fat can lead to Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, anxiety, depression, strokes, heart disease, and even many types of cancer. You lose a lot when you gain.
GET YOUR HORMONES IN SHAPE
When it comes to weight loss, sometimes you can diet and exercise and maybe a few pounds peel off. You can even just keep gaining. But know that it isn’t always your fault. Often your own hormones can be getting in the way throwing a crushing weight on all your well-intended weight loss efforts. Hormones direct our body’s responses; how we respond to things like food, exercise, stress, and sleep and they play a huge role in how your metabolism functions. How you use food for fuel, whether it gets stored or burned, whether you feel hungry or full, whether you experience cravings or not. It affects your mood and even your motivation to exercise.
